GALVESTON, Texas (FOX 26)
The Carnival Cruise Line Liberty ship was forced to return to Galveston after a woman fell and suffered an open leg fracture, the Galveston EMS has confirmed. Once the ship docked in Galveston, the injured woman was taken to UTMB Health John Sealy Hospital.
A spokeswoman for Carnival Cruise Line Liberty provided the following statement to FOX 26 News:
We had a guest on board who experienced a medical emergency and required further medical treatment ashore so we brought the ship back to the dock. We were just on our way out of port so headed back in. The guest is now off the vessel and the ship is on its way back out to continue with the voyage.
